Wines Hand Crafted With Purpose
Before creating Point Bush Ecosanctuary, Gary produced our own grown and hand crafted boutique wine vintages between 2006 to 2016. The focus was always on what we called a “paddock to palate” approach – keeping the distance from fruit harvested to where it was processed down to a minimum. (Unlike some vineyards and wineries needing to transport fruit hundreds of kilometers, our vineyard was within a stones throw of the winery back door!)
We fondly like to think of this time as our decade dedicated to wine making excellence! With the end of the 2016 vintage we made the decision to move on from being wine growers (which is in a large part a labour of love!) and continue to cellar our boutique vintages in the European style for sale and to put all the proceeds from wine sales back into our environment, and towards Point Bush Ecosanctuary!
Gary has since hung up his winemaker hat, with his eyes now set on creating a haven for native birdlife - we are proud to continue to share our wonderful range of cellared wines with you dear friends, with our online cellar door store available to you 24/7 in the comfort of your own home! You can buy our specially curated selections of Point Bush Wines vintages cellared from 2008 through to 2016, with free shipping anywhere in New Zealand. These wines just keep getting better with age!
And the real bonus for you? You know that every dollar you spend is going DIRECTLY into protecting and enhancing the native flora and fauna right here at Point Bush Ecosanctuary. Cheers to that!
